HTHGS: Withdrawal (written by Amanda Lambros, BA)

Dear Amanda, 
Me and my boyfriend are very sexually active. However, we do not use condoms just for a better experience so he just pulls out his penis right before he is about to ejaculate. Can I still get pregnant from pre-ejaculation? Thanks. Sincerely, Unprotected

Dear Unprotected, 
The current method of contraception that you are using is called 'the withdrawal' method. This is not a very effective method of birth control. The failure rate is around 19% which means that if you and your boyfriend have sex 100 times, of those 100 times, there will be 19 chances that you are likely to get pregnant. 

I have to say that 'yes' you can become pregnant with this method because the few drops of fluid that come out of the penis during arousal may carry enough sperm for a pregnancy to occur. If he ejaculates outside of the vagina but near the vulva (all genitals on the outside) sperm may still get into the vagina. Another flaw is that sometimes the man does not withdraw in time. They may feel as tough they have but they could be mistaken. 

Although not the safest but definitely more safe then 'withdrawal' is using a condom. If you still want the 'feeling' try using extra thin condoms. It might feel slightly different for him (but not too different if using extra thin condoms) is better than taking care of a child that you didn't plan for. Hope I was able to help you out. Stay Safe.... Amanda

  Our Philosophy sex is like dancing, it changes every time. It depends on culture, atmosphere and mood. Sometimes it is done alone, with a partner or in a group. It can be fast and hard or slow and soft. Sex is a combination of non-verbal negotiation and verbal cues: a scream, a twitch of the toes, or a flush of the face. There is no one 'right' way to move, only what feels good to all those involved.
